KCWC-Days Five, Six & Seven: A Pattern Drafted, and half-finished dresses

For the last three days of the KCWC, I drafted a new pattern and began sewing it up. Sometimes pattern drafting goes really quickly for me, and other times it doesn’t.

This one took a while, possibly because I was already tired when I started (in the late evening, after the kids are in bed). I drafted it all up on Friday, cut it out and starting sewing Saturday and worked until I reached a fiddly part on Sunday. By then, I had most certainly put in my ‘hour a day’ and I decided I wanted to sit on the couch and read. So this is where it stands right now.

(that collar is even, it’s just a funny angle of the photo that makes it look weird)

I will probably finish these up this week on Wednesday night. Wednesdays are my sewing days – the kids go to bed and my husband is out of the house, so I can sew uninterrupted for a few hours. Hey, maybe I’ll get them done in time to enter in to this weeks challenge at PR&P!?!

Thanks to Elsie Marley for hosing KCWC. It was really fun to participate. I’m looking forward to the challenge in the fall, and I think I’ll draft up all my designs and cut out my fabric in advance next time!

  1. I am in love with the colors you chose! I can't wait to see the finished product. I've been needed to say this for some time now - you are seriously the most talented seamstress and designer I have come across in blog world. Your clothes are gorgeous and finished so professionally. Flawless! I wish we lived close so I could be your apprentice! :)
